Matrix Portal has corrupted file system?

by jasonchildress on Tue Oct 13, 2020 10:13 pm

I'm running into an issue with my new Matrix Portals (I have two and they're both doing the same thing). I can not delete, edit or access the code.py file on my CURCUITPY drive. I can see other py files and edit them, just not the code.py file.

I've never seen this issue on any of my other CP boards. But I've always used release builds of CP, not a beta. It looks like CP for the new Matrix Portal is only available in 6.x beta and nothing earlier.

Are there any tricks to resetting the board to factory or getting a clean/empty code.py file on the board?

After some digging, I found this repo with a flash erase uf2 utility.
https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit_Le ... sh_erasers

This seemed to have done the trick for one of my devices. But no matter how many times I install this uf2 on the other Matrix Portal, it won't erase the flash.

At least I have one up and running. If anybody has any other suggestions to try, I'd appreciate that.

The instructions from here did the trick for the second device. They're both back to normal.
